"net rpc vampire" creates a new group in the LDAP directory for each "Alias" 
found during the SAM migration. But in the directory, for a group alias I 
cannot find the referecence to the real group 
For example with net rpc samdump : 
Alias 'Account Operators' desc='Members can administer domain user and group 
accounts' rid=548 
Alias rid 548: S-1-5-21-106116734-1480922733-1264475144-2225 
and for this entry in LDAP I found :  
dn: cn=Account Operators,ou=Groups,o=xxx,c=xx 
objectClass: posixGroup 
objectClass: sambaGroupMapping 
cn: Account Operators 
gidNumber: 1550 
creatorsName: cn=admin,o=xxx,c=xx 
createTimestamp: 20030602171844Z 
sambaSID: S-1-5-32-548 
sambaGroupType: 5 
displayName: Account Operators 
description: Members can administer domain user and group accounts 
modifiersName: cn=admin,o=xxx,c=xx 
modifyTimestamp: 20030602171844Z 
but there isn't any reference to the real group 
Thank you for your help.
